Description

BACKGROUND
1. Technical Field
The present disclosure relates to a bracket for mounting a hard disk drive thereon.
2. Description of Related Art
With development in computer technology, computers have become an indispensable part of our daily life. In a computer, a hard disk drive (HDD) is needed for storing information. Generally, the HDD is mounted on a frame and the frame is then mounted in the computer. However, the frame generally can only mount a limited number of HDDs. For example, only one or two HDDs can be mounted on the frame. If more HDDs are desired in the computer, another frame is needed to mount the additional HDDs thereon. However, the computer generally has a limited space, thus may not have room for accommodating another frame therein.
What is needed, therefore, is a device for expanding the number of HDDs for the computer to thereby overcome the above described shortcomings.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
FIG. 1 is an isometric view of a bracket for mounting a HDD according to an exemplary embodiment.
FIG. 2 is similar to FIG. 1, but the bracket is shown in an exploded manner.
FIG. 3 is similar to FIG. 1, wherein the HDD is to be mounted onto the bracket.
FIG. 4 is an assembled, isometric view of the bracket and the HDD of FIG. 1.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION
Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, a bracket 10 for mounting a HDD 20 according to an exemplary embodiment is shown. The bracket 10 is to be installed in an enclosure (not shown) of a computer. The HDD 20 defines a plurality of mounting holes 22 at each of top and bottom sides thereof.
The bracket 10 includes a fixing plate 12 for connecting with the enclosure of the computer and a holding frame 11 connected with the fixing plate 12 for mounting the HDD 20. A pair of securing ears 124 extend perpendicularly outwardly from a lateral side edge of the fixing plate 12 towards the holding frame 11. The securing ears 124 each define a securing hole 120 therein.
The holding frame 11 includes a rectangular mounting plate 14, a U-shaped enclosing wall 16 extending perpendicularly outwardly from a front surface of the mounting plate 14, and a pair of resilient clips 18 connected with the enclosing wall 16. The mounting plate 14 defines two through holes 140 at a left side thereof. The through holes 140 are aligned with the securing holes 120 of the securing ears 124 of the fixing plate 12, respectively, such that screws 30 can extend through the through holes 140 and the securing holes 120 to connect the fixing plate 12 and the holding frame 11 together. Referring also to FIG. 4, a pin set 144 extends downwardly from a bottom of the mounting plate 14 for being received in an appropriate slot available in the enclosure of the computer.
The enclosing wall 16 includes a pair of parallel first flanges 161 and a second flange 162 which is shorter than each of the first flanges 161. The first flanges 161 are formed at the top and bottom sides of the mounting plate 14, respectively. The second flange 162 is formed at one side of the mounting plate 14. The second flange 162 is located adjacent to and parallel with the fixing plate 12. The second flange 162 is perpendicular to and connected between the two first flanges 161, such that the first and second flanges 161, 162 cooperatively define a receiving space 141 for receiving the HDD 20 therein. The receiving space 141 has an open end at one side thereof. The two first flanges 161 each define a plurality of through holes 160 therein.
The two resilient clips 18 are respectively attached to the two first flanges 161. The resilient clips 18 are made of materials with good elasticity. Each of the resilient clips 18 includes a sheet 181 and a plurality of poles 188 extending from the sheet towards the receiving space 141. The sheet 181 is attached to an outer surface of a corresponding first flange 161 of the enclosing wall 16. The sheet 181 includes a fixed end 182 fixed on the first flange 161 of the enclosing wall 16, and an opposite free end 184. A handle tab 186 for facilitating manual operation extends perpendicularly from a distal tip of the free end 184 of the sheet 181 and points away from the first flange 161 of the enclosing wall 16. The poles 188 extend through the through holes 160 of the first flanges 161 and protrude into the receiving space 141.
Referring to FIGS. 3 and 4, in assembly, the handle tabs 186 of the resilient clips 18 are pulled to cause the free ends 184 of the sheets 181 to move away from the first flanges 161 of the enclosing wall 16. As the fixed ends 182 of the resilient clips 18 are fixedly connected with the first flanges 161, the resilient clips 18 may deform. In this state, the poles 188 of the resilient clips 18 move away from the through holes 160 of the first flanges 161 of the enclosing wall 16, and the resilient clips 18 deform. Then, the HDD 20 is placed into the receiving space 141 with the mounting holes 22 of the HDD 20 respectively aligned with the through holes 160 of the first flanges 161 of the enclosing wall 16. By releasing the free ends 184 of the resilient clips 18, the resilient clips 18 resume to their original state, and the poles 188 extend through the through holes 160 of the first flanges 161 and engage in the mounting holes 22 of the HDD 20, respectively. Thus, the HDD 20 is firmly fixed in the receiving space 141 of the bracket 10 by the resilient clips 18.
Generally, a plurality of expansion slots for mounting expansion cards, such as peripheral component interconnect (PCI) cards and accelerated graphics ports (AGP) cards, are set on a motherboard of the computer. Some of the expansion slots are often not used. In other words, no expansion cards are mounted on these unused expansion slots. Since the bracket 10 has a profile like an expansion card and a pin set 144 is provided on the bracket 10, the bracket 10 can advantageously utilize an unused expansion slot and make use of the space above the unused expansion slot in the computer for fixing the HDD 20, whereby the storage capacity of the computer is greatly expanded. In addition, assembly and disassembly of the HDD 20 is convenient due to the presence of the resilient clips 18.
It is to be understood, however, that even though numerous characteristics and advantages of the disclosure have been set forth in the foregoing description, together with details of the structure and function of the embodiments, the disclosure is illustrative only, and changes may be made in detail, especially in matters of shape, size, and arrangement of parts within the principles of the invention to the full extent indicated by the broad general meaning of the terms in which the appended claims are expressed.
